about

Princess Decomposia is overworked and underappreciated.

This princess of the underworld has plenty of her own work to do but always seems to find herself doing her layabout father's job, as well. The king doesn't feel quite well, you see. Ever. So the princess is left scurrying through the halls, dodging her mummy, werewolf, and ghost subjects, always running behind and always buried under a ton of paperwork. Oh, and her father just fired the chef, so now she has to hire a new cook as well.

Luckily for Princess Decomposia, she makes a good hire in Count Spatula, the vampire chef with a sweet tooth. He's a charming go-getter of a blood-sucker, and pretty soon the two young ghouls become friends. And then...more than friends? Maybe eventually, but first Princess Decomposia has to sort out her life. And with Count Spatula at her side, you can be sure she'll succeed.

Andi Watson (Glister, Gum Girl) brings his signature gothy-cute sensibility to this very sweet and mildly spooky tale of friendship, family, and management training for the undead.

Andi Watson was born and raised in the north of England where he loved to draw and read books. It rained a lot. Upon graduating college he realised this was the perfect background for a cartoonist.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fairytale for Goth Vampire Princesses On first look, this delightful book appears deceptively simplistic. Cute black and white illustrations are accompanied by a story that starts out with a busy princess and a grouchy king. However hidden inside these pages is a lovely story about love and friendship full of humour that made me grin, chuckle and sigh. Oh, and it takes place in the underworld, is populated with zombies, vampires, ghosts and such. The princess and the count are adorable ageless characters; the princess is young enough to be under her father's control, but they are both old enough for love. I'm very smitten with this, it has a fairy tale quality to it while being drawn in a cute Goth presentation. Wonderful children's story but I think any Goth vampire princess will love it too!

Editorial Reviews

"With an amusing (and occasionally decomposing) cast of floating skulls, eyeballs- on-skeleton-legs, and more, it's a comic that will charm younger readers and adults alike." -Pubishers Weekly
